MENUMENU

Bovey Bat Walk

Date: Sunday 16th of September 2018
Time: 7pm-8.30pm
Location: Middle Treadlebere Down car park, Bovey Tracey

Rare greater horseshoe bats have a roost nearby and make great use of the surrounding countryside as they hunt for insects.

Join Cath Valentine from Bovey Bat Group to explore the area and listen out for bats, also see the display of work in DGC inspired by the Project. Bats are nocturnal and use a system called echolocation to navigate, making high frequency calls as they fly and listen to the returning echoes to build up a sonic map of their surroundings.
